Malaga 2018: Arrival


A short post from nighttime Malaga after a fairly late arrival. My flight didn’t land until 8pm and so by the time I’d got to my hotel from the airport, checked in, and went out in search of a light supper, it was gone 9.30. Luckily my hotel – Salles Hotel Malaga Centro – seems ideally placed and it took me less than 5 minutes to walk down the road, cross a bridge and find myself in the old historic centre. Even a tired traveller was immediately impressed by its beauty as I wandered down pedestrianised old streets.

I took pot luck on where to eat almost immediately and the tapas was OK though nothing to get excited about. But it was cheap, the service friendly and just sitting outside in such pretty surroundings was great.

Afterwards I took a short walk further on to Plaza San Ignacio.


When I arrived in the square I walked round and then headed back to the hotel. Tomorrow and Friday I’m doing a modern art history course with Hotel Alphabet ( and with lots of walking and art gazing and contemplating ahead of me, sleep calls. But I enjoyed my walk and I’m looking forward to seeing Malaga in the daylight.
